The dog doo doo hit the fan for Centerplate CEO Desmond Hague in late August when footage of him kicking a puppy in a Vancouver hotel elevator went public via social media. He initially apologized, offering to donate $100,000 toward the protection of animals. But the Connecticut-based CEO had to resign when faced with the outrage over him putting the boot to his puppy.
A recent study found that dogs and humans, who have lived together for at least 15,000 years, often build a bond of trust and understanding which has a positive impact on the mental health of the dog owner.
Something one ex-CEO should think about now he has more time to walk his dog.
